Ford House Quarantine Coloring Contest!
Posted: April 3, 2020

Please note: The contest is over, and we enjoyed all of your entries. The winners have been notified. We
will send prizes as soon as it is safe to do so!
 
While the estate is closed and so many of us are sitting at home, it's time to get creative.
 
We are introducing a weekly coloring contest. We will post a new coloring page inspired by the house, our history, and the collection each week for the next three weeks (and longer if we need to).
 
Who can play along? Anyone with crayons, markers or colored pencils. All ages can participate!
 
Post your colored in page here in the comments on our Facebook post. We will draw a winner at random each Friday, and post a new coloring page. The weekly winners will receive a Ford House prize pack including a coloring book, and a set of four grounds passes to use when we can open the estate again.
 
Winners will be notified via Facebook. To receive their prizes, they must send us an email with their name and home address to info[at]fordhouse.org.
 
This week's page:
 
 
Week 4: It's Moss! Our border collie loves to chase the geese on the estate. Imagine where Moss is, and fill in your own geese. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD and then share your design on our Facebook page.
 
Previous weeks' pages
 
We have already named the winners for these pages, but you can still color and enjoy them!
 
Week 3: Say thank you to all the heroes fighting the spread of COVID-19. Enter the name of someone you know, or say thanks to all the healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers. You can even hang this page in your window to spread the love.
 
  
Week 2: When spotted in the Ford House gardens, Cedar Waxwings steal the show with their bright colors. They are among the many species that call the estate home.
 
 
Week 1: Edsel Ford’s 1932 Speedster, which he designed with Bob “E.T.” Gregorie. The Speedster will be on display in an exhibit in our new Visitor Center featuring Edsel’s influence on automotive design.
